Dashing Edmund Dantes Jr. (Louis Hayward), the son of the famed Count of Monte Cristo, uses the masked guise of the Torch to come to the aid of his beloved the fair Zona (Joan Bennett), royal grand duchess of Lichtenburg in an attempt to rescue both her and her country from falling into the hands of a determined dictator named General Gurko Lanen (George Sanders) who would be king and force poor Zona to be his queen.

Louis Hayward & Joan Bennett Do Well In "The Son of Monte Cristo"
Louis Hayward and Joan Bennett are attractive co-stars in this entertaining romantic period piece. George Sanders always does well when he is featured in menacing and threatening roles. This is a good feature film.

big budget film, but not in color. it doesn't have any particularly great moments, but it carries on all the same.
